Old Jail

The Masonry Vernacular building was constructed in 1909, with alterations in 1940 and 1960. The design is typical for small jails of the early twentieth century: on the first floor there are the living quarters for the sheriff or deputy and his family, and on the second floor there are the steel cages for the inmates. It is one of only two standing buildings of this design left in the U.S. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 15, 2014.

Built in 1909, it was designed by Georgia-born American architect Edward Columbus Hosford, who is noted for the courthouses and other buildings that he designed in Florida, Georgia and Texas. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 19, 1977
